Curated this recipe for my dear friend Mariam! We share a love for coffee and cute desserts, and these are some of her favorite flavors. I love creating and developing recipes, give this one a try! Your coffee will thank you 😉

Cardamom, Pistachio and Rose Biscotti 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or butter)–you’ll get a different consistency depending on what you use, oil will yield a crispier biscotti whereas butter a bit softer
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cardamom (to taste, add more if you’d like, but be careful it gets strong quick)

 

Topping:

  • Dipping White chocolate ( I have no patience for non-dipping chocolate. Dipping chocolate sets SO much faster)
  • Edible roses (I get them from my local middle eastern store)
  • Crushed pistachio 
  • Sprinkle of cardamom

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Position rack in the center.
  • Spray a non stick spray on foil which goes on your cookie sheet 
  • In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs on medium speed until light and frothy (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Add the sugar gradually and whisk for another minute or so.
  • add in your butter or oil and whisk
  • Add the vanilla and cardamom. Whisk for another minute.
  • Incorporate the flour mixture. Mix until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • Pour mixture onto your cookie sheet and form a big rectangle. (Or if you want smaller biscotti make 2 long rows of rectangular shaped dough)
    • watch a YouTube video if you don’t understand this step!
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top 
  • Take it out of the oven and with a *sharp* knife, cut the biscotti into thickness that you desire. Then flip them onto their side. Bake for another 10-12 min. Take the biscotti out and flip it to the other side and bake for another 10-12 min. 
  • Take it out to cool
  • Top with a white dipping chocolate, cardamom, crushed pistachios and edible roses 
  • Dunk in coffee and enjoy!
